If you have the right sized 6-sided wrenches to fit the two sizes of bleeder screws and you have someone to help by pushing on the pedal only part of the way down each time (not past normal travel) to push fluid through...

I use a turkey baster and removed the old fluid from the reservoir. Then put in new fluid and started bleeding at each wheel until clear fluid came out. Keep checking the reservoir to keep it full.

But first find your leak or reason for loss of fluid level like Archon said.

how/what did you use to clean the inside though?

And I will be checking brakes today as soon as I'm done shampooing!
